About This Book

In over 700 color photographs specially taken for this book, a wide range of imperial and regional, decorative and practical, export and domestic, ceremonial and funerary wares are fully represented. These are organized into four chronologically arranged sections, from the Neolithic to the end of the Qing dynasty, each accompanied by a survey of the period and detailed descriptions of the pieces illustrated. The notes on the plates are furthur illustrated with photographs of the base marks, a vital aid in the identification process. An important reference section includes: a glossary of technical terms, complete with Chinese characters; a full bibliography; and lists of major public collections. First published in hardback in 1996, this is the 2006 reprint in paperback.
